Mindfulness for Pain Management

Mindfulness for Pain Management

Did you know – Mindfulness Meditation can be helpful in the management and relief of chronic pain?

One of our Psychologists, Dr Amanda White, was recently interviewed by the About Pain website. You can read the full article here.

“If pain is escalating, mindfulness meditation is a practice to create space around the pain so that it does not overwhelm the person experiencing it.”

Dr Amanda White, Psychologist

The Link Between Diet, Happiness and Serotonin

Sometimes we are in a good mood without even knowing why.

This phenomenon could be linked to an increased Serotonin level in our brains.

Serotonin is most commonly known as the neurotransmitter associated with feelings of contentment and happiness, and has been long associated with mental health.
Brisbane mental health dietitian and nutritionist Ashleigh Hamilton is happy to assist you with increasing your serotonin levels and thus happiness through diet.

Yoga and Mindfulness

Yoga and Mindfulness

So many of us live our day-to-day lives always looking to what the next moment will bring, or getting caught up in events that have passed.

Our mind runs at a hundred kilometres per minute, and at the end of the day when (if!) we finally check in with ourselves in the present moment, we find ourselves both mentally and physically exhausted.

Our psychological stress affects our physical energy (and vice versa) because our mind and body are part of the same system. They are not separate entities. Because the mind and body are inextricably linked, it creates a two-way street, and activities such as Yoga and Mindfulness utilise this connection to support our wellbeing.


Embracing Flow in your Life

Embracing Flow in your Life

The secret to overcoming inner resistance, is embracing the psychology of flow in your life.

By practising Mindfulness techniques such as meditation, you can cultivate “flow” – the enjoyable inner state that we associate with things we love doing – even when doing difficult tasks.
